for that. the u.n.'s nuclear agency says iran is poised to double output of enriched uranium that could be used in a nuclear warhead. the report says that iran will be technically ready within days that ramp up production of enriched uranium at one facility, cut in half the time it takes to make enough to fuel a bomb. iran denies any interest in nuclear weapons. here at home, we're now about a month and a half away from the fiscal cliff, the massive tax hikes and spending cuts that threaten to push the economy back into recession. lawmakers in washington met with the president today in a first step to try to find a way back from the abyss. chief washington correspondent james rosen tells us how it went. >> with that, we're going to get to work. >> the president hosting leaders from both parties and chambers of congress at the roosevelt room and appears to be sticking to his guns on taxes for higher income earningsers, own obliquely reining in entitlement spending. >> my hope is this going to be the beginning of a fruitful process where we're able to come to an agreement that will reduce
the sort of weird series of events, we have at the u.n. ambassador sent out. why she was sent out -- i don't know. she doesn't seem like the person to be sent out. certainly, she was the wrong person because she carried the party line, at least what i see about this business about the spontaneous protest, as well as the video. then you have general petraeus. he goes 9/14 with the same story. you have the president going on every entertainment -- exaggeration, he went on letterman and the view. that's weird. you have the problem with eligible petraeus and broadwell, the girlfriend. we don't finish that relationship poisoned how he did his job. how did she get classified documents. where did she get that and whether or not, you know, when did the affair begin, did it begin in the military, and did he lie about it? it's all done, presumably, so far, whined closed doors, but it was just one day, right? >> right. i think that's why senator mccain and graham and iiot have proposed the select committee. presumably, that would be in public. i think this is going to go on for quite sometime. i thin
think it is important. that susan wright, the un embassy came out on the five talk shows that said it was because of the video that the libya attack happened. look at what 60 minutes released on line. there are long passages and questions about whether or not it was a terrorism attack look at this and then you judge why they left it out sunday night after susan wright said it was the video. >> steve: steve croft asked the president. you went out of the way to avoid the word terrorism in connection with the statue of liberty attack. >> brian: mitt romney said the same thing >> chris: can they said his was political. the president responded it was too early to tell how it came about. it was an attack on americans. the president is rehuctant to call it terrorism. he said what group was involved. if there was a group involved with rpg's and knew within two hours afterwards that an affiliate of al-qaida claimed responsibility on social media and for the president to say we don't know which group? it is terrorist. >> gretchen: it is it why that was important story not included in the ori
by hamas rockets. >> and i want to ask you about those cease-fire negotiations. there are u.n. officials in egypt right now. egypt is trying to broker a cease-fire agreement with hamas. hamas seems not to be budging. so explain to us like if you're the egyptian president, what are you saying to the leader of hamas? >> the egyptians are in a very difficult situation because on the one hand mohamed morsi, the president of egypt, the muslim brotherhood, in part made its name by outright support for hamas for a radical brand of palestinian nationalism not the more moderate brand of fatah on the west bank. yet the egyptians cannot afford a situation where the united states walks away from its military aid. the egyptians have placed themselves into the center of this extraordinary drama. they're trying to work out a cease-fire. they've been working with the turkish prime minister, prime minister erdogan, the leadership of qatar, and now the u.n. chief ban ki-moon, secretary-general of the united nations, is going to be in egypt today. the sides are very far apart. it doesn't a cease-fire is im
. we saw famously benjamin netanyahu, the prime minister of israel before the u.n. with that diagram talking about the redline. what was peres's definition of that red line? is it the same as the united states? >> it's really interesting because all the talk about iran and it being the most dangerous threat to the world has -- we've heard very, very little about iran from the leaders here in israel, but we did ask president peres what he thought about if israel decided to strike iran because here in this country there has been a lot of argument and some investigative stories that have come out that show that mr. netanyahu was at odds with his military commanders as to whether or not they could have a strike on raurn done only by israel without the help of the united states and have that be a successful one. here is what the president had to say about it. >> i think that, first of all, we have we have all we have to do without any strike at home, and we have to add the time and collect the measures to bring an end to the iranian danger by economic and political pressure. this is the p
's improving off the bottom. it's a huge increase. i don't think this is enough to get an un-- it's politically speaking, it's that friday number that people will be focusing on of the what is the unemployment rate. >> steve: the monthly? >> yeah. i think that may tick up. particularly if more people are looking for work, it could have an impact on this race by picking up even though things are getting marginally better. >> gretchen: does this thursday number, which we always report weekly, the first-time unemployment claims, people walk into the office for the first time, does that number correlate? >> sometimes it does and sometimes it doesn't. none of these numbers correlate very well. >> gretchen: so because this went down and lower than expected doesn't mean unemployment will go down tomorrow? >> no. on friday, if the number goes up, for example, goes up to 8, let's say, 8%, that doesn't mean that things are necessarily bad 'cause more people are looking for work. they feel more confident. so all these numbers have to be looked at in context and -- remember, these are statistical estimate
. according to the onion, it's not will cain either, it's kim jong-un. there he is, alongside channing tatum. onion says the 29-year-old north korean supreme leader gets the nod with his devastatingly handsome looks, boyish charm, round cheeks plus, the onion says, they have a cuddly side. >> now we're quoting "the onion." >>> former cia director david petraeus is testifying right now behind closed doors. house committee wants to know everything he knows about the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. at the same time he is investigating, the cia is launch an investigation into the conduct that forced him to resign last week. dana bash is in washington for us this morning. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, soledad. david petraeus has been behind closed doors for about an hour now, or so we're told. we never actual ly saw him go i. i just want to give you a sense of the geography down here. lock at this staircase here. this is the staircase that the then cia director david petraeus came down in the open when he was here in september to brief the members of the house intellig
to al-qaeda in that u.n. speech to the world was that al-qaeda had been weakened and osama bin laden was dead. so i think this raises additional questions. it goes beyond ambassador rice. first of all, why were the talking points changed? it doesn't make any sense to me that we were trying to dupe al-qaeda that. doesn't pass the laugh test. buff also why was the president out 14 days later and still fail to go call it a terrorist attack to the world? >> steve: absolutely. because we don't know a lot of what is told by the intelligence community to the president of the united states, but we understand that 72 hours after the attack the presidential daily briefing, which tells the president about all the stuff that's going on, and it's classified, said just that. it wasn't spontaneous, and that it apparently had ties to that al-qaeda affiliate. so the president knew, even though he was out saying something else. >> i think it's deeply troubling, we got to get to the bottom of it. we have to assume he's receiving the classified information and we have no know why were the talking points
